Skeletonwitch vs. Battlecross – Death Match
With their fourth consecutive win in our series of Death Matches, Incantation were able to defeat Suffocation to gain entry into the Death Match Hall of Fame. Congrats to the brutal band as their track ‘Invoked Infinity’ has been declared immortal! Although we won’t be hearing from Incantation in this Death Match, we’ve got two new acts ready for battle.
In a fight between new school thrash acts, we first introduce Skeletonwitch and their ripping new track ‘Burned From Bone.’ Skeletonwitch are 10 years strong in their career and will release their fifth full-length album, ‘Serpents Unleashed,’ on Oct. 29.
Speaking of 10 years strong, Battlecross are celebrating a decade of thrash / melodic death metal with their third studio album, ‘War of Will.’ There are a bunch of quality tracks from the record to choose from, but we’ve entered ‘Force Fed Lies’ into the fold.
Will Skeletonwitch break their opponents down to the bone? Or can Battlecross smite their foes in the Death Match arena? Vote below and see who comes out alive!
(This Death Match ends on Tuesday, Sept. 17, at 10AM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)
